“Great weekend get away.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I have been to Westlake on a few occasions we love the view ,the friendly service from the owner. The rooms are spacious and clean. If you are looking for a fancy place with all the frills this is not for you. However this does provide a nice comfy ,clean and spacious room to enjoy a beautiful lake. We love Westlake and would recommend a try.

We just returned from 4 nights at the Westlake Waterfront Inn and had a wonderful weekend. The owner and his daughter Liz work hard to ensure that their guests are happy and satisified with their stay - even volunteering to be our DD. The rooms were large and clean and was a good price and the view was wonderful.

They're located just 2 minutes from the grocery store and 10 minutes from Bridgewater Plaza.

The Mexican restaurant across the street was very good as well.

The view was nice. That sums up any positive elements.

We had made a reservation weeks in advance, but no employee was there when we arrived. We called the emergency number and were told what room was ours and that it was open. We were mostl;y unpacked when the employee arrived and it became apparent that there was no wifi in our room. We had to re-pack and move to another room--where there was no place in the bathroom to put our toiletries and no luggage rack or table in the room for our suitcase. When I inisted that we needed both of those things, the employee dragged odd tables in from the common balcony.

We wanted a nice place to enjoy our vacation. Should have read the reviews first.
The first thing to say is the owner was very nice and talkative and his pet dog Zeus was a very nice dog do not help when it came to the room.
It had a very bad odor. Thankfully there was a front and back to the room to allow for ventilation.
It did have a small dorm refrigerator that never got cold enough to keep anything in it.
The AC was loud and didn't cool as it could have
The beds were full size and HARD as rocks. Both the wife and I felt as we would fall out of bed at any time. The beds were very low to the floor as well.
There was no pictures on the wall, there was a large hole in the corner by the left hand bed.
The shower was horrid! To start there was hardly no pressure at all. After traveling for 3 1/2 hours was in need of a shower. So jumped in and once in the water found it had a very bad odor. It seemed to stay with us all day.
We left there the next day and went 5 miles to another hotel.
BTW there is a sign after you get in that says " No Refunds". That should be warning about this hotel.

I certainly don't want to hurt anyone's business but, this place needs an upgrade of everything. Everything is old (not antique) just ready for refurbishing and replacement. If you're looking to fish with a buddy perhaps it's ok. If you're looking for a romantic place to (motel) stay, look elsewhere.

We were so glad to find a spot on the lake that would accommodate us for just a night. We never met Ron but he was very friendly and helpful while booking our reservation. The rooms look out on the lake. We really enjoyed sitting out on the lawn chairs in the evening and watching the stars and the boat lights. Very peaceful. Our friends were allowed to launch their boat and park their truck in the lot for a small fee.

The rooms were somewhat econo. The decor is cheap and outdated, toiletries very budget. I never would consider going back at $150 a night....except for the nice spot on the lake and the fact that there are no other options. Oh, and the dogs were perfectly fine...gentle giants.

There is a restaurant right across the road, but they are new and not (yet?) up to par. The breakfast was horrible.
